The City of Los Angeles will soon start mailing letters to about 10,000 people, and later issue thousands of checks totaling as much as $750,000, to make amends for wrongful billings by the Police Department for false alarms over the last two years. And the reason for the over-billings, Police Cmdr. Matthew V. Hunt said, is rooted in a wrongheaded decision made two years ago by someone within the Police Commission staff regarding false-alarm billings.

Re "Where's Osama?" letter, June 22: Osama bin Laden is the latest version of Pancho Villa, a Mexican warlord who invaded the U.S. in 1916. He and his band laid waste to the town of Columbus, N.M. President Woodrow Wilson sent most of the Army into the mountains of Mexico to "hunt 'em down and smoke 'em out." Alas, the American armed forces never found Villa or his band. What they did find was the aroused population, who fought against the Yankee invaders of their country. After three months the Army returned to the U.S. Why not send the politicians with all their slogans and bombast to hunt for old Osama?

A woman with a history of fighting New Jersey's controversial annual black bear hunt scored a court victory this week when a judge ruled that the pile of bear-friendly food and bear feces found in her front yard did not prove she had violated state laws against feeding the animals. It was the second time Susan Kehoe has faced criminal charges since New Jersey in 2003 permitted its first black bear hunt in 33 years.  Kehoe, 61, was acquitted in a court in Vernon on Tuesday night, the Star-Ledger reported , despite testimony from state wildlife officials that they found dog food, sunflower seeds and bear feces in the front yard of Kehoe's home in a rural area of northern New Jersey.

November 18, 2009 | DeeDee Correll, Correll writes for The Times.
As a boy, Terry Reach used to traipse the land around his Pinedale, Wyo., home, searching for antlers shed by deer and elk. It was a solitary pastime; he never saw anyone else, and he always found plenty of antlers, which he'd drag home and pile in the yard. But now, each winter, western Wyoming is thick with people intent on snatching up as many antlers as they can find. They follow the bucks, waiting for them to shed their impressive headgear. Sometimes people chase the animals on all-terrain vehicles or snowmobiles, believing the exertion will force them to drop their antlers.

OIL: As oil prices continue to slump, major U.S. oil firms likely will revise capital spending plans downward, with the oil hunt focused overseas. Independent producers will struggle to afford domestic oil exploration. Consumers will benefit from lower prices.
